Miss Maud Swedish Hotel - Murray Street, Perth (Australia)

So far, my travelling bags has been put to good use. First the solo trip to Bangkok, thereafter to Vietnam and Cambodia, solo again, but in a tour with the rest of the people I didn't know who they were. These two solo travel ventures were definitely an eye-opener to travelling alone compared to with friends (Malacca trip) and next was this one week Curtin University training. While I was feeling confident, honestly, still a little nervous deep down travelling to another new place all by myself.  

Arriving in Perth airport after 4 hours, maybe because I looked panicky, twice I was stopped for a whole list of questions - what's the purpose of this travel, where I will be staying, how long etc etc. If not for the detailed documents I knew I had to sash in my handbag, I beg to differ on the consequences. Then, another not nice experience of being driving by the foreign cab driver who dropped me off across the road instead of in front of Ms Maud hotel. I wondered why because I had to struggled with my luggage while carefully crossing the luggage before entering Miss Maud Swedish Hotel. A traditional boutique hotel, the way to my 3rd floor room was via the small lift and thanks to the staff who helped to carry my things to my comfortable, cosy and single clean room with standard amenities and a beautiful view of the rooftop herb garden. Awesome, nothing to complain about, honestly, no, which was my home for the a week.  

Within the next 20 minutes, I walked out of the hotel and into the cosmopolitan street. Bustling busy with all sorts of people and lined with eateries and retail outlets on both sides of the street, I thought I was back in Malaysia. Oh-well, the same daily routine,  the traffic and who ever said everything shuts down by 5.00pm in Perth?? No,  not all.

Coming up next - Ms Maud Restaurant.
